NASA will hold its 2nd NASA IT Summit at the San Francisco Marriott Marquis in San Francisco, CA, August 15-17. This year’s theme is “Making IT Stellar at NASA!”
“This year’s event will feature discussions grouped into tracks by subject matter. Those will include infrastructure, innovation, the roles of CIOs, IT security, organizational communication, open government, tomorrow’s workforce, and ‘waves of the future.’ A new track, Mission IT Supporting Science & Engineering at NASA, will be launched. IBM’s Watson will also be at the Summit to show what it can do,” said event co-chair Karen Harper.
Following the summit is a TEDxNASA@SiliconValley 2011 (separate registration required) aimed to help “promote innovative thinking in technology, design, and space exploration.” The event is sponsored by NASA’s Ames, Dryden, Glenn, and Langley aeronautics centers.
